Trujillo to Guadalupe

Today we had a fairly short drive further northeast towards the Parador of Guadalupe, another new Parador for us. We drove through the mountains.

The view on our drive to Guadalupe

Guadalupe is the site of the Royal Monastery of Guadalupe. It has been a pilgrimage destination since the fourteenth century. At the location where pilgrims first crested a hill and looked down on Guadalupe there is a Hermitage.

The Parador of Guadalupe is right next to the cathedral.

The view of the Parador and the Cathedral from the balcony of our room blew me away when we walked in.

We have to leave here fairly early tomorrow to meet Roger and Gail at the airport in Madrid. So this afternoon we drove back up to the Hermitage and recoded Duke’s second car review of this trip.

When we got back to Guadalupe we went exploring.

We had a picnic in our room for dinner.

  1. The setting of Guadalupe is breathe taking. The car review was good but how about some pom pom girls to add a little pizazz. 56mpg makes the cost of gas a little easier to absorb. I missed the 1st review so I’ll have to retrace your blog Marion. You two make a good team. Next time Marion, ask harder questions. Ask what the torque is. I want him stumped on live video.
